What values should we teach in schools and why?
THE aims of an education system must encompass more than the knowledge and skills required for the workplace, but also reflect our beliefs and desires for a good society, and moral citizens. However, human beings have the potential for developing in many directions, and there is much debate about what these directions should be. As the educationalist, Wringe (1988), noted: ‘…the problem of educational aims is deciding which kinds of development should be fostered and which discouraged’. (p.43)
